The tournament features a day of golf on what has been honored as one of the “Best New Courses in The Country”, by Golfweek Magazine, along with a post round Million Dollar Hole in One shootout.

During the 2009 event, Jason Hargett, from Springville, Utah, hit a nine iron, 150 yards into the cup to win the $1 million dollar prize. This hole-in-one made news in every major city in the United States and even made international news. Jason was also the play of the day on ESPN, was on the CBS Early Show and made a guest appearance on the Ellen Show.

"Everyone here at Victory Ranch is gearing up to host this great charitable event led by one of the icons from the Utah Jazz organization," stated Steve Hupe, director of golf at Victory Ranch Club. "Not only will the event allow participants an opportunity to meet and interact with Mark, but the event raises much needed funds for charity," added Hupe.

This year's beneficiaries are the Anasazi Foundation and the Shaktikrupa Charitable Trust. The Anasazi Foundation uses these funds to create scholarships to treat underprivileged teens and young adults for substance abuse, depression, family conflict, and other concerns. The Shaktikrupa Charitable Trust provides infrastructure of healthcare in rural areas of India and to date has treated over 500,000 outpatients, 100,000 inpatients, and have conducted more than 18,000 surgeries as well as 3,000 child birth deliveries.
